13.9. Sinthujan Varatharajah in conversation with Maithu Bùi (German)

What context do the visitors miss through the absence of the artists in the exhibition space? Which context is created and changed by the ongoing reception before and after the visit of the exhibition space? Which contexts are created or also disregarded by exhibited works? For Moshtari Hilal and Sinthujan Varatharajah, there are no works without people who make them, institutions that exhibit them, commission them, and a public that receives them. Who are these people, institutions, and what does the context do to the art?

As part of the educational program of the 12th Berlin Biennale, the artist and curator Moshtari Hilal and the political geographer Sinthujan Varatharajah will host the conversation series kunst im kontext/art in context. Live on Instagram, they will contextualize works from the exhibition in dialogue with guests.
